Happy Saturday!!

Hello everyone!! Hope you are having a great weekend so far!! The sun is finally shining here, but it is very deceptive, because it is still rather cold. I have to go to a dinner this evening so I needed a thank you card. I decided that whatever the challenge was on SCS today, I was going to use it to make this card, even though I still need Valentine's cards!! Anyway, the inspiration challenge was a lovely bedding set. I tried to let the beautiful rich colors inspire me, but it didn't work. After an hour of looking at the bedding and trying to think of something, I finally noticed the pillow on the bed, so that is what I focused on. I started with a Handsome Hunter base, then Mellow Moss, and finally Whisper White. The Whisper White was run through my cuttlebug with the script folder. I then took my Mellow Moss pad and rubbed it over the top of the embossing. I then tied a piece of hunter organdy ribbon around and poorly attempted to tie a bow. Why is it that everyone elses always look so good, I always wonder if they have to struggle as much as I do?? I then took a piece of Mellow Moss and stamped the Queen's Anne Lace on it in Hunter and then a couple times in versamark. I embossed them in clear embossing powder. I then matted them with Whisper White and then the Hunter. I used the antique copper hodgepodge hardware from SU and the thank you sentiment from All Holidays. I punched it out with the small oval punch, and then punched the white and the hunter with the large oval punch. I then cut the white down to make it a mat for the Mellow Moss layer. Well that is all for now!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
